Jordan Caron Railroaded by Colten Teubert

CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! DING DING DING DING DING DING DING CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Wow, that was a big hit, and for those of you wondering the name of the freight train is Colten Teubert, a 6′ 4” 200 pound defenseman property of the Los Angeles Kings. The victim, Boston Bruins first round pick Jordan Caron. Caron suffered a broken collar bone from this hit and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, including the Bruins rookie camp in Kitchener Ontario. The one thing that kind of gets me is the way Teubert handles the interview after, as though it wasn’t that big of a deal and he’ll pat Caron on the back and apologize. I guess that’s what makes hockey so sweet, keep your head up and you won’t be taking inventory of your teeth.

Islanders win the Tavares Sweepstakes

islanderspatience

From NHL.com:

With a 48.2-percent chance of being awarded the No. 1 pick (250 number combinations were assigned to New York), the Isles won the Scotiabank/NHL Draft Lottery on Tuesday night. The Islanders, who suffered more than 500 man-games lost to injury in 2008-09, had just 61 points (26-47-9), the fewest in the League.

The first round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft will be held on June 26 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Because the Islanders won the lottery, the draft order remains intact with the League’s regular-season standings. The Tampa Bay Lightning (66 points) will draft second, followed by the Colorado Avalanche (69), Atlanta Thrashers (76) and Los Angeles Kings (79), respectively. All five teams had a crack at the No. 1 pick.

“It was obviously something that was very well-publicized and something people were looking forward to, but being a goalie as long as I was, there’s a lot of things you can’t control,” Islanders General Manager Garth Snow told NHL.com. “We hoped for the best and probably didn’t sweat it out, knowing that I really didn’t have any control over the situation.”

It’s expected to be another huge draft for the Islanders, who also own the San Jose Sharks‘ first-round pick and three more selections in Round 2. New York also took 13 players in the 2008 Draft, including center Josh Bailey, who spent the entire 2008-09 season on Long Island. The Isles held the fifth pick in 2008 but traded down twice to No. 9, gaining more selections in the process.

Bruins took a big 4-3 game over the Philly last night.

This post will be mostly filled with videos since I didn’t get much sleep after waking up in cold sweats all night from reoccurring nightmares of Jack Edward’s psychotic cackle. Video below if you haven’t seen it yet:
